The forecast yesterday called for flurries and snow showers during the evening, lingering thru this AM. If you happened to miss that information, it wasn't difficult to tell something was up by looking skyward. I'll show you what I mean thru the photos I snapped at sundown ~ one looking east (with the moon rising) and the others looking west (following the setting sun). The rising moon, barely breaking the cloud cover, above the bare branches of the aspen:
This is most definitely a winter sky. A sight I'll get very familiar with in the months to come. To the west, however, an entirely different scene:
An unaltered photo of the setting sun creating a most beautiful silhouette of one cloud. Spectacular, isn't it? Absolutely worth a closer look:
I opened the blinds with trepidation this morning, expecting a blanket of white. Exhale. Nothing but brown. It missed us. Sigh. I am never ready for that first snowfall of the season. I'm glad it decided to hold off.
